“If we consider light as a form of life force, fundamental to life and intrinsic to the natural world, then laser light is a distillation of this life force in its purest state. The work’s resemblance to the Sputnik, the first man-made object sent into space, is incidental, but I like the reference to space as we are all of us standing on a giant sphere in deep space.”
Admire millions of beautiful light beams as they move above your head, making contact with a central structure in The Square before scattering around you in geometrical shapes and repetitive patterns.
Using multiple laser systems, Levine takes us beyond the primary colour palette usually associated with the laser so that Molecule of Light radiates millions of colours on the spectrum along with its dominant mood of purple and magenta.
The installation creates a sense of the infinite and ever-changing nature of life, simple in the geometry of its physical form, but infinite in its light energetic output – producing a heightened experience of light unlike any that Melbourne has seen before.
The laser effects are programmed on a one hour cycle and are complemented by an immersive and meditative soundscape.
